Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Project Researcher (Computer Vision and Machine Learning), 2-4 positions

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www.tuni.fi/en

We are seeking new members to our computer vision and machine learning research. We offer e.g. positions ranging from 1 to 4 years on levels of:

Postdoctoral researcher
Research engineer (Project researcher)
Research residency for a software professional (Project researcher)

The positions will offer excellent opportunities to work in a team of professionals responsible for developing cutting edge computer vision and machine learning technology, and allows you to learn many aspects from fundamental research problems to concrete applications.

The research residency enables software professionals to join an academic research team for a fixed time period and to extend their knowledge in the state-of-the-art computer vision and machine learning methods. The length of the residency period is agreed individually and varies from a few months to one year.

We welcome applications with any research focus related to computer vision and machine learning. In addition, we are especially seeking candidates with the following research focus:

Visual localization
Visual-inertial odometry
Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
3D scene reconstruction
Machine learning based image reconstruction and manipulation
Sensor fusion and statistical machine learning
Augmented reality for games and mobile applications (Android and/or iOS)

Ideal candidate has a strong programming and mathematics background. Experience in (or strong will to learn) programming with Python or C++/Java are considered as advantages. Previous experience on Android/iOS programming is also beneficial, particularly for the research engineer positions.


The research work at Tampere University will be supervised by the Assistant Professor Esa Rahtu and it is part of a larger consortium between Tampere University, Aalto University and the University of Oulu. We work broadly in the fields of computer vision and machine learning. We are pursuing research problems in geometric computer vision (including topics such as visual SLAM, visual-inertial odometry, and 3D scene reconstruction), in semantic computer vision (including topics such as image-based localization, object detection and recognition, and deep learning), and statistical machine learning (Gaussian processes).

Working and studying in Finland

Finland has been assessed to be among the best countries in the worldwith respect to many quality of life indicators, including being the overall #1 country in human wellbeing. Finland is among the leading countries in ICT & Digitalization, from 5G networks to financial technology, artificial intelligence and AR/VR innovations to IoT, digital education and health solutions. Finland’s booming gaming industry is led by companies like Supercell (Clash of Clans) and Rovio (Angry Birds). More information about studying and working in Finland can be obtained from the links:


The salary for a postdoctoral researcher starts typically from 3 500 EUR per month, and increases based on experience. The salary of a research engineer (project researcher) and research resident (project researcher) varies between 2400 - 5000 EUR depending on the experience.

In addition to the salary, the contract includes occupational healthcare benefits, and Finland has a comprehensive social security system.

How to apply

The first stage of the application process is very light. There is no need for motivation letters or research statements. You only need send your application together with the following documents:

- Curriculum vitae
- School and university score records
- Indicate also the position type you are interested in: postdoc, engineer, or residency.

The deadline for the applications is June 26th, 2019 at 23:59 (Finnish time). The review of applications will be done on a rolling basis, so early submissions are strongly encouraged. The starting date of the positions will be negotiated individually.
